Abstract [en]

The IT forensic process causing bottlenecks in investigations is an identified issue, with multiple underlying causes – one of the main causes being the lack of expertise among those responsible for ordering IT forensic investigations. The focus of the study is to create and evaluate a potential solution for this problem, aiming to answer research questions related to a suitable architecture, structure and design of a digital tool that would assist individuals in creating IT forensic orders. This work evaluates concepts of such a digital tool. This is done using a grounded theory approach, where a series of test sessions together with the answers from a survey have been examined and analyzed in an iterative process. A low-fidelity prototype is used in the process. The resulting conclusion of the study is a set of concepts, ideas and principles for a digital tool that would aid in the IT forensic ordering process, as well improving the efficiency of the IT forensic process itself. Future work could involve developing the concept further to eventually become a finished product, or using it for improving already existing systems and tools, improving the efficiency and quality of the IT forensic process.
